  1. Tami, well done!

    I enjoyed the formating, the content and exactness of the messaging. This presentation provides a very good condensed “story” of food protection concerns.
    You should be commended for the use of good graphics and colors to augment your case for sound food handling practices.
    This ppt. should be taken on the road!!

    • Hi Mike,

      Thanks for the postive comments; they are very much appreciated! In fact, I do plan on “taking it on the road” by using the presentation with our public health volunteers that provide healthy eating and food skill building opportunities. I hope that they find it useful education and informative as well!
